Sunday morning attendance was good, visitors were present and they are always welcomed. Our prayer is they received a blessing and was encouraged by being with us for worship and will fell welcome to come back. This service was opened with prayer and welcome by Bro. Ron. He then sang the chorus, “We Worship You.” The choir’s special was “Blessed Redeemer.” Special music by Ellen Harville was “Peace in the Valley.” Other special music was “As the Deer” by Adele Shiver. Bro. Ron’s message, “Work and Witness of Holy Spirit,” Eph. 1: 13-14 and other verses. We’re here today because of the praise and glory to God according to His grace. The Holy Spirit seal upon us is proof of our present position we have in Christ; the seal signifies transaction our Savior came as one of us, His life for mine. We listened to message, heard and believed how to be saved and was sealed by the Holy Spirit until day of redemption, we’re marked. Holy Spirit is the pledge of our future possessions for the Praise of His Glory. God has given us a glimpse of heaven through the scriptures. After the message The Lord’s Supper was observed. We were dismissed by singing the song, “The Family of God.”

Meet the success twins – cultivation and conversation.
Stop at the bottom and wake up.
The idle man does not know what it is to enjoy rest.
Some people pray for more than they are willing to work for.
Nobody ever got his mind dirty doing hard work.
Before you say you cannot, give it a try.
The best medicine is to love your work and your enemies.
Great things are done when men and mountains meet.
You will never lose your shirt if you keep your sleeves rolled up.
A clean mouth and an honest hand will take a man through any circumstance.
Most men who get to the top quickly start by rising early.
Work isn’t work if you enjoy it.
It takes an honest man to tell whether he’s tired or just lazy.
The best time to look for work is after you get the job.
The best oil you can use in life is elbow grease.
Pray for our nation!
